Proposed cuts to the Northern Trust:

  • Acute medical beds would reduce to safe staffing levels - an estimation of 16 to 20 beds may close in both Antrim and Causeway Hospitals
  • Reduce non-urgent elective day surgery and in-patient surgery
  • Reduce use of 'flexible' staffing - this includes end reliance on non-contract agency, reduce contracted agency and locums
  • Reduce the number of community based rehabilitation beds
  • Temporarily close Rehabilitation Services at Whiteabbey Hospital 
  • Containment of growth in community care home placement and domiciliary care packages 
  • Complete the exit plan for domiciliary meals provision (meals provided to people in their own homes)
  • Reduce use of private non-emergency ambulance transport
  • Increase car park charges at the two acute hospital sites
